Catholic Recipe: Australian Beefsteak and Kidney Pie
It may be hard to find lamb kidneys to make the authentic pie. This makes a hearty meal.
Cut beef into 1-inch cubes; slice kidneys. Dip into flour blended with salt and pepper. Sauté in hot oil until slightly browned. Add onion slice and water or stock. Simmer 30 to 45 minutes. Cool; pour into 1-quart casserole. The liquid should come nearly to the top of the dish. Cover casserole with pastry; brush with egg or milk. Bake at 425° until brown about 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 45 minutes longer. Makes 4 servings.Recipe Source: Cook's Blessings, The by Demetria Taylor, Random House, New York, 1965
